Battersea Arts Centre and Young Vic Theatres Young producers Programme provides talented young people with producing training, including professional masterclasses, workshops and access to resources.
The Young Producers are given a brief, budget and support to create and produce their own events within Battersea Arts Centre's youth takeover, Homegrown Festival. This is an exciting opportunity to bring out-of-the-box ideas to Battersea Arts Centre, from DJ nights to experimental performance and live debates. The Young Producers will be offered group mentoring, free theatre tickets and a weeklong producing programme intensive at the Young Vic.
You will gain an introduction to producing through workshops in scheduling, budgeting, marketing, project management, and artist liaison as well as learn from Battersea Arts Centre and Young Vic producers and arts professionals that run a range of events, previous guest speakers have produced club nights, cabaret socials and independent festivals.
We are interested in hearing from people with a wide range of interests. You do not need experience to apply. Past Young Producers have included beatboxers, art students, sixth-formers, fashion designers, hairdressers, work at Battersea Arts Centre and even start their own events and production companies.
Battersea Arts Centre and the Young Vic asks that the Young Producers programming:
Is bold and takes risks
Is interesting, exciting and important to the target audience of 18-29 year olds
Engages new audiences in the building
Includes different people and ideas
Applications for 2019 are currently closed
